Compromise Civil Rights Bill
Fails To Gain Majority Support

ditch effort by President John F.
Kennedy's administration to line
up a majority of the House Judi-
ciary Committee behind a compro-
mise civil rights bill apparently
failed yesterday.
Kennedy conferred last night
4 with key House leaders of both
parties in a personal effort to sal-
vage a civil rights bill in the House.
One possible result, sources said,
is likely to be a second postpone-,
ment- of a showdown vote in the
judiciary committee.
Supporters of a more sweeping
bill said they have solid assurances
they have enough votes to send

However, one of the leaders of

this effort fell short of its goal.
The administration is expected
to persist in efforts to narrow the
bill down. The probable strategy
will be to work out a milder ver-
sion and have it presented either
as a substitute package, or in the
form of amendments, once the bill
reaches the floor.
Celler, although he originally
helped draft the 10-part bill being
pushed by a coalition of Republi-
cans and liberal Democrats, sought
to help the administration achieve
a compromise. He said two advo-
cates of the stronger bill did not
appreciate the strength of the pro-

There were indications, how-
ever, that even Celler would now
go along with the majority and
vote to send the subcommittee bill
to the House floor.
It was Rep. Arch A. Moore, Jr..
(R-W. Va) who moved to vote on
the subcommittee bill, and he said
11 of the 14 Republicans on the
committee would vote for it.

U.S. Announces Policy
On New Experiments
President John F. Kennedy announced Tuesday that the United
States will be committed "to make every effort" to publish the reasons
for large scale scientific experiments before they are authorized.
The purpose of this "open examination" would be to allow the
world community an opportunity to view proposed experiments that
might adversely affect man's environment. Kennedy did say that
there will be exceptions when this
policy will have to be violated such
as a matter of national security. Pate Asks

government followed this proced-
